Click on the video to see a pizza get made in less than 60 seconds.
It's official, Sarpino's opened in downtown Northbrook. The new delivery and carry-out service operates out of the former Northbrook Garage, at 1384 Meadow Rd. It's been about a year since the location was slated to become a pizzeria and bad luck with a contractor delayed the storefront's opening, but general manager Tisha Akulich says customers have already picked a favorite pizza off the 50+ item menu.

"We met a lot of obstacles so it was delayed," Akulich said, though he declined to specify what kept the store from opening sooner. Akulich said he still needs to finish recruiting, training staff and testing his equipment.

A Sarpino’s Pizza store stands to become the third tenant in the former Northbrook Garage site at Meadow and Shermer roads.
